Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Symptoms [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Evaluation of patient's symptoms using WOMAC (western ontario and mcmaster universities osteoarthritis index), VAS (visual analogic scale of pain) and Lequesne questionaires

Detailed Description:

The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of a lateral wedge insole with subtalar strapping in knee osteoarthritis treatment. Fifty-eight patients with knee osteoarthritis were randomized to use either a lateral wedge or a neutral insole. VAS, Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) and Lequesne questionnaires were applied at baseline, and weeks two, eight, and 24.
